Aromatherapy & Massage Consults
Imagine lying on a massage table, letting your stress and anxieties melt away...
We all need a sanctuary - a place and space to feel safe, sometimes that is a space we can learn to create within ourselves and sometimes it is a space that someone else can hold for us, a place where we can be nurtured and loved unconditionally, a refuge without judgement, an escape from the world around you.
During an Aromatherapy & Massage Session with Vicky you will be offered a place to reconnect with yourself; to reflect and uncover your values and wisdom, your deepest truths and heartfelt desires.
Through the use of modalities such as Aromatherapy, Hot Stone Massage and Lomi Lomi, as well as Mindfulness Practices, Vicky aims to empower others to trust their inner guidance and feel confident to take responsibility for their life choices; choices that will best serve all of you and all of your needs.
By sharing her lessons and life experiences Vicky hopes she can inform and teach others what life has taught her, so you leave with clarity, strength and courage.
Each session will vary depending on current life challenges or circumstances...
Typically a session begins with a debrief and full consult, from there we determine the way forward to better suit your healing journey, as the emotional and physical bodies are synergistically treated.
For those suffering strong physical pain, it can be a reflection of what your body is holding onto emotionally.
A regular deep tissue massage is incredibly relaxing, but the addition of hot stones takes it to another level.
Do you hate it when, you have had a deep tissue massage and later that day, or the next morning, you feel achy and bruised?
Hot stones help ease the muscles and relax them after a therapeutic work out on the massage table. Using hot stones during a massage can also, alleviate pain, improve circulation and help rid the body of toxins. This type of massage treatment can also reduce stress, promote calmness and increase relaxation.
The hot stones become an extension of the therapist. Whilst using Swedish or Therapeutic massage techniques, Vicky holds the stones in her hands and incorporates the stones into flowing moves, ensuring the stones are comfortably heated.
Now imagine adding to the bliss of hot stones, aromatherapy oils.
Essential oils have the benefit of taking advantage of another sense, the sense of smell. Many positive memories can be created using your olfactory sense. Have you ever walked into a room, a garden, or somewhere and been drawn to a particular aroma that has brought up a childhood memory or something from your past? Memories of grandma’s perfume? Or a place you visited as a child? So not only are they looking after your emotional health, essential oils work on a very physical level too.
The skin is not only the largest organ of elimination, but also very efficient at absorbing what we put on it, which then allows the oils to pass directly into the bloodstream.
As a Clinical Aromatherapist, Vicky can prescribe oils during your massage to assist with most health issues.
So whilst you are relaxing away and your muscles are getting a work out, the oils can be working even harder to improve either your overall health or a specific issue.
Vicky has been doing aromatherapy since 2004, and in the following year also studied various Hawaiian techniques, as well as hot stone massage, enjoying some of her studies on the island of Kauai. Vicky is also a Mental Health First Aider and Facilitator of Wellness Programs. She also holds a Certificate 4 in Naturopathy and is a qualified Chef, so has a huge passion for Wholefood Medicine.
